i paused. i thought. i was blown away with the realization, i had just asked God to heal a person of brain cancer half way around the world. i don't know the person. i've never met the person. i don't know exactly where they live. i don't even know their last name and yet i prayed with confidence that God was going to do the deed.
some say God did that sort of thing in the old days when people needed it to be convinced of His Lordship. i am inclined to believe God does this sort of thing today, because of His Lordship needing no convincing. He is the I AM and works His will and purpose in our lives out of His being who He is. not who we are.
He doesn't need our participation, but He enjoys the company when we choose to abide in Him. It is in His company, miracles happen. just believe and receive.
